Guidelines for Exporters of Selected Vegetables to the UK Market

This booklet is the second in a series aiming to provide practical information in an easyreference format to help anyone in the business, or wishing to enter it, research the market and make contacts before developing or investing in an exportoriented enterprise. The changing nature of the UK market has made it even more vital for the exporter to have the hard facts. The increasing importance of the larger supermarkets, with their strict specifications for all fresh produce, means that exporters have to be prepared to meet these requirements if they are to succeed in the market.

These guidelines are designed to address the basic questions which exporters of asparagus, aubergine, babycorn, capsicum, cherry tomato, chillies, christophene courgette, mangetout and okra need answered before they try and venture into the UK market.
